Two TE market approaches and impact on grid and customer flexibility

April 27, 2022
David Holmberg
This presentation covers simulation research evaluating two approaches to communicating value of electricity to customers. The first communicates day ahead prices to customers and allows customers to purchase forecast load at those prices with actual

Load Forecasting Tool for NIST Transactive Energy Market

September 27, 2021
Farhad Omar, David Holmberg
Customers and transactive energy (TE) market managers may rely on load forecasting algorithms to purchase or sell power in a forward market environment, using day-ahead and real-time pricing structures. Accurate load forecasting becomes necessary when a

Martin J. Burns, Yuyin Song, David G. Holmberg
The transactive energy (TE) abstract component model (“Model”) was the product of a tiger team effort engaged by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL), Vanderbilt University, and Carnegie Mellon

Transactive Energy Challenge Phase II Scenario

October 23, 2018
David G. Holmberg, Martin J. Burns, Steven T. Bushby, Avi M. Gopstein
The TE Challenge Phase II Scenario was developed in a multi-step process in collaboration with industry experts. The Scenario includes a common electric grid definition including attached loads and generators, weather, and reporting metrics which together

Transactive Energy Application Landscape Scenarios

December 15, 2016
David G. Holmberg, David Hardin, Ronald Melton, Ron Cunningham, Steve Widergren
This paper presents an analysis of the transactive energy (TE) application landscape, specifically examining the transactive process, business functions, actors in different smart grid (SG) application domains, and time scales. These process steps

Impact of Electricity Tariff Parameters on Net Zero Home Cost of Energy

September 29, 2015
Andrew P. Kuo, David Holmberg, Steven T. Bushby
Time-varying electricity rates impact the costs of operation and the value of renewable generation and storage resources. This study investigates the economic impact of electricity tariff parameters on the value of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the

Standardization of Smart Grid Customer Interfaces

July 1, 2015
Steven T. Bushby, David G. Holmberg
One of the key concepts of a modernized “smart grid” is to combine modern communication technology with an improved electric grid to enable energy consumers to exchange information with energy suppliers in order to collaboratively manage electricity supply

NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, Release 3.0

October 1, 2014
Chris Greer, David A. Wollman, Dean Prochaska, Paul A. Boynton, Jeffrey A. Mazer, Cuong Nguyen, Gerald FitzPatrick, Thomas L. Nelson, Galen H. Koepke, Allen R. Hefner Jr., Victoria Yan Pillitteri, Tanya L. Brewer, Nada T. Golmie, David H. Su, Allan C. Eustis, David Holmberg, Steven T. Bushby
Section 1305 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-140) directs NIST ‘‘to coordinate the development of a framework that includes protocols and model standards for information management to achieve interoperability of

Facility Smart Grid Interface and a Demand Response Conceptual Model

August 28, 2014
David G. Holmberg, Steven T. Bushby, David B. Hardin
Residential, commercial, and industrial facilities have potential to support electric grid reliability with demand response (DR) via use of facility energy management approaches. The ability of different DR approaches to successfully engage the maximum

Correlating Photovoltaic Clear-Sky and Actual Output to Sky Cover Measurements

September 1, 2013
David R. Daily, David Holmberg, John Baras
As distributed energy resources are added to existing building systems, and variable priced electricity tariffs are introduced, facility owners may profit from understanding the expected performance of their building systems. Hourly, forecast energy

Towards Demand Response Measurement and Verification Standards

May 1, 2013
David G. Holmberg, David Hardin, Ed Koch
The value and impact of demand response (DR) at grid-scale depends upon the widespread and active participation of a diverse customer base. The level of participation by customers is impacted by financial compensation and return-on-investment. The role of

Delivering Building Intelligence to First Responders

February 27, 2013
David G. Holmberg, Michelle A. Raymond, Jason D. Averill
Presently, there is no integrated solution for delivering building systems data into the hands of emergency responders. A standard building data delivery solution will integrate the capacity of the building fire safety systems with the capabilities of the

OpenADR Advances

November 1, 2012
David G. Holmberg, Girish Ghatikar, Ed Koch, Jim Boch
One important goal for the advancement of smart grid deployments is to enable buildings to dynamically respond to the supply of electricity. Buildings should respond to grid event and price signals in order to manage peak demands on the electric grid and
